History In Bloom

 

Please join us Sunday, April 17th for an afternoon filled with History, Heritage and Horticulture as we present a variety of tours to delight all interests and ages.

We turn back time as horse drawn carriages ride through the arboretum on a beautiful Spring Sunday.  The rides begin at Noon and run consecutively until 3:30PM.  Along the route see some of Spring Grove’s Champion trees, beautiful blossoms, lush green foliage, art, architecture and wildlife.  You will even meet some of our more notable ‘residents.’


45 minute walking tours will be led by our knowledgeable docents.  Beginning at noon, 1P, 2P, and 3P, two topics will be offered each hour. 

The following topics will be offered this year:  

12:00 - History and Heritage / Civil War

1:00 - Architecture / Remarkable Women of the Grove

2:00 - Norman Chapel / Memorial Mausoleum Windows

3:00 - Obelisks / Horticulture
